The authorities in Pakistan's tribal region bordering Afghanistan say another headless body has been found.
Officials say the body is believed to be that of an Afghan national.

They say that the man was killed by unidentified men who left the body in a ditch in Bajaur tribal agency, 12 kms west of the town of Khar.

Militants have beheaded several people further south in the Waziristan region who they suspected of spying for the government or for the United States.

Officials say the body was brought to Khar for identification, but buried it after it proved impossible to identify.

Meanwhile, two children were seriously wounded in a land mine blast in the Bajaur agency on Wednesday night.

They have been taken to hospital for treatment.

The area has seen an increasing number of attacks on security forces after the killing of a man said to be an al-Qaeda explosive expert during a clash with local police at a checkpoint last month.
